"I’ve been looking forward to reading “More Scary Kisses” since I finished the first volume awhile back and I’d been saving it for awhile. I finally got to crack it recently and was quite excited at what goodies it would hold. The introduction only fueled my excitement."

Scary Minds reviews Liz Grzyb's More Scary Kisses and gives it 9 out of 10. We're really pleased to read:
If after a good collection of offbeat dark genre musings then you have come to the right place. Editor Grzyb throws down the gauntlet to non-romance readers and makes you wonder just what you might have been missing in a certain genre.

Talent shines in this beguiling collection of 17 paranormal romance stories from Down Under, many of which are more haunting and humorous than scary. Mr. Darcy of Pride and Prejudice takes a turn as a barbaric demon slayer in Fraser Sherman's "The Sword of Darcy," while a sugar-crazed cherub does his best to reunite two lovers in Nicole R. Murphy's "The Protector's Last Mission." A telepathic tentacle monster reluctantly wedded to a human woman finds a way toward happy-ever-after in Liz Coley's "Marriage of Convenience." On the creepier end, both Felicity Dowker's "Berries and Incense" and Kirstyn McDermott's "Frostbitten" will leave readers with chills. Martin Livings and Talie Helene close the anthology with "The Last Gig of Jimmy Rucker," a brilliantly hypnotizing and heartwarming tale. Readers will be delighted by this introduction to some of Australia's best paranormal romance writers.
